From November 11th-13th AudiblEye attended the National Federation of the Blind Convention at the DoubleTree by Hilton in Independence, Ohio. The convention included various events and educational sessions of which attendees actively participated.
Working with MD Support and their pilot program LowViz Guide the hotel convention center was outfitted with bluetooth beacons and our indoor navigation application. Many users enjoyed using the app and provided valuable feedback for our continuous effort to improve the app. Over 150 attendees enjoyed navigating independently within the convention center.
This was the very first time that the NFB Ohio Chapter had equipped their state convention with indoor navigation technology and the results were truly amazing! Individuals that downloaded the application utilized our way-finding technology to navigate the convention, find meeting rooms, and learn more about their surroundings. With descriptive information of each of the conference rooms and other points of interest such as restrooms, fitness room, and restaurants within the hotel attendees were able to hear information while navigating independently within the conference areas.
